Power system stability is correlated with system structure, disturbances and operating conditions, and power flows on transmission lines are closely related with those conditions. This paper proposes a methodology to identify correlative power flows for power system transient and small-signal stability prediction. In transient stability sense, the Critical Clearing Time is used to select some dominant contingencies, and Transient Stability Prediction index is proposed for the quantitative comparison among the contingencies. Also, this paper discusses a methodology to identify crucial transmission lines of which flows are related with small-signal stability by introducing a sensitivity factor based on eigenvalue sensitivity technique. On-line monitoring of the selected lines enables to predict transient stability in real-time. Also, a procedure to make a priority list of monitored transmission lines is proposed. The procedure is applied to a test system, and it shows capabilities of the proposed method.
